 Dave Hutchins

Dave - From being one of Idavesmsland Record's house engineers, in 1977 Dave left London, having been recruited into the position of house engineer at Conny Planks Studio near Cologne.

Pete Hutchins

petesmPete - Demon electronics design engineer and bass player extraordinaire, with an almost unparalleled wealth of knowledge gained, not just here at home, but also from 8 years working and playing in Los Angeles.

In 1993 Pete returned to the UK and set up his own company, Logician Ltd. Audio Alchemy's main PA was designed and built by Pete under the Logician banner, pioneering the concept of cabinets incorporating power amps, speaker specific EQ and processing long before becoming commonplace in the PA market.

Pete has undertaken design and development work for major pro audio companies including Soundcraft and Allen & Heath.

Audio Alchemy is held together by Pete's technical expertise, with monitors, and FOH engineering, as additional talents.
